What is ESCOT?
ESCOT is KRONK Boxing Gym's youth development program. Not only is it THE place for kids to be after school, but it's also the place where kids get a shot at becoming champions in life.
Kids don't have to box to be a part of ESCOT. They just have to want to be a champions and hang with other kids who want to be champions too.
ESCOT gives kids a shot at becoming champions in life, and gives our supporters a shot at becoming champions too.
Provide kids a place where they can excel in Athletics, Academics, Leadership and Community, so they can stay on the right path, become anything they want and give back as productive members of society.
Founded on the Philosophies of the Great Emanuel Steward
KRONK's legendary Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward may have had over 41 world champions to his credit, and that's more than any other trainer in the history of boxing. But he also had a legacy of helping young people be champions in life. Today, his mission lives on bigger and better than ever through ESCOT, Emanuel Steward Champions of Tomorrow. Help us keep the legacy going.
ESCOT is 100% Free to Kids!
ESCOT (Emanuel Steward Champions of Tomorrow) programs are fully sponsored by people like you who want to give kids a shot at being champions in life. Kids who come to the gym can participate in our athletic programs or our boxing programs. All kids, even those who are on the KRONK amateur boxing team, participate in youth development. Our daily work is to help every kid graduate high school, teach them the ways of a champion and launch into early adulthood.
